in all honesty, most bands jam. The Dead and Allman Bros. get a bit too much credit from Heads as being the original jam band. Cream, Hendrix Experience, probably the Who, Santana, all jammed. Even RHCP will jam for 10-15 minutes on certain songs. What separates the Dead from these bands is Type II jamming

I heard Bush jam out "Everything's Zen" for upwards of 15 minutes at Hfstival in 95. It was so completely uncalled-for.

Agreed, the Who have just gotten more-so in to it. I have seen the Allmans a bunch of times, including twice with Duane. I always thought they were the true . original jam band, but the Dead started stretching ut at the same time.

type I jams - jamming with in the confines of the song, i.e. Jack Straw

type II - exploratory jams, nothing set in stone, can go anywhere. i.e. Dark Star, Space, the random jams
